Submissions for the Hansel Mieth Prize are open until 15 January 2016. Established by the Zeitenspiegel Agency, the annual award is particularly aimed at journalists and photographers who have defied pressures and threats from prominent lobbying groups. The 2016 award will once again honour a printed reportage, as well as an online reportage in the form of either a text/photo or sound/moving image feature. Either prize consist of 6,000 euros.
In line with Mieth's journalistic approach, the Hansel Mieth Prize recognises socially relevant reportages produced for German-language print media in the previous year – published or unpublished, in colour or black and white. Both text and photography are taken into account, with the winning author/photographer team receiving 6,000 euros. In addition, the ten best entries are presented in an exhibition.
Photojournalist Johanna Mieth
The Hansel Mieth Prize was established in 1998 in honour of the late photojournalist Johanna 'Hansel' Mieth. It is awarded annually by a jury of journalists and photographers to recognise outstanding reportages that reflect the commitment to social justice in Hansel Mieth's work.
